            Wonder of Nature's Way: Stunning Images of Australia's Incomparable Top End Journey (Hardback)

            Nature's Way is one of the most glorious tourist drives in Australia - indeed the world - heading from Darwin in the Northern Territory out east to Kakadu National Park, south to Nitmiluk National Park (formerly known as Katherine Gorge) then north back to Darwin via Litchfield N...ational Park. As well as the national parks, the route passes many lesser known but often almost equally sublime places. Louise showcases the journey with beautiful and dramatic photographs, the result of her phenomenal eye for composition and seeming endless patience to capture a scene at just the right moment. No shrinking violet, Louise heads out in all weathers and has captured the region in all its guises, from the still, parched dry season to the often violently stormy early wet season to the rich, exuberantly green late wet season. As well as landscapes, Louise gets to grips with showing us the rhythms and flows of the diverse flora and fauna to be seen along the route, with wonderfully shot images of many of the animals and plants that are part of this incredible landscape.

            Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: The story of a sporting icon
             

            Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: The story of a sporting icon (Paperback)

            The Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is the story of one of the world's greatest sporting challenges. One evening in May 1945, a small group of Sydney sailing enthusiasts decided that their planned post-Christmas cruise south to Hobart would be more enjoyable if they made it a race. And ...so began the story of a contest that quickly became ranked among the world's premier offshore racing events - a race that demands both immense physical and mental endurance of the individual sailor along with the coordinated effort of a close-knit team. It's a challenge where one mistake can lead to defeat, while success can deliver national and international acclaim. In its 75th year, the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race has become an icon of Australia's summer sport, ranking in public interest with such national events as the Melbourne Cup, the Australian Open tennis and the Boxing Day cricket test. No regular annual yachting event in the world attracts such huge media coverage or public interest as does the start on Sydney Harbour. The 628-nautical mile course is often described as the most grueling long ocean race in the world. From the spectacular start in Sydney Harbour, the fleet sails through the Heads, down the south-east coast of mainland Australia, across the notoriously tempestuous Bass Strait, then down the east coast of Tasmania. At Tasman Island the fleet turns right into Storm Bay for the final sail up the Derwent River. The race is an around-the-clock challenge from the harbour to Hobart, and the whims of the winds, waves, tides and currents means that, for each crew, nothing is certain until the finish line is crossed. The Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is the story of one of the world's greatest sporting challenges, an event where men and women from all walks of life are inspired and challenged by the beauty and power of nature.
